Here's a look at which demographic groups have shifted most:
Biggest net-negative demographic shifts in Supreme court favorables
||Net favorable (Feb.)
||Net favorable (July)
||Total net-Neg shift
Americans under 35
Navigator also found significant movement among independents:
A majority of Independents view the Court unfavorably (55 percent), and nearly two in three say they do not trust the Court to make the right decisions in the future (net -28; 36 percent trust – 64 percent do not trust), a net 38-point shift since April (net +10; 55 percent trust – 45 percent do not trust).
It's worth noting here that the biggest movement toward Democrats in the generic ballot has come from independents, particularly independent women.
That generic-ballot movement toward Democrats is also part and parcel of another Navigator finding: a double-digit decline in favorables for the GOP.
Republican Party favorables have dropped from -7 in May to -17 now (39% favorable, 56% unfavorable) with a net negative shift among independents of 24 points (-19 in May to -43 now).
Net favorables for the Democratic Party, however, have remained more stable in Navigator’s polling, declining just 3 points from -5 points in May to -8 points now (44% favorable, 52% unfavorable).
